There is finally a Mario Kart game for smart phones. This app was released September 25th at 4 am. Mario Kart is free to download on both iOS and Android platforms. There are many updated tracks and the same characters that many games have, such as the baby characters, and even metal Mario. There are mixed reviews about it so far, Mario Kart Tour has a rating of 4.3 out of 5 on the Google Play Store and a 4.7 out of 5 on the iOS App Store.
Some students have enjoyed the game so far, others have had problems with the controls. The good side is that steering controls can be changed, but it is still in need of a fix. This is a great opportunity for Nintendo to gain back it’s popularity, due to teens and adults, alike, both reminiscing of their childhood, playing on the original SNES, Game Boy, DS, and Wii. The game is very fun and simple to play, besides the complaints of the controls.
With smart phones taking over this is a great opportunity for Nintendo. Mario Kart Tour has some in-app purchases, such as characters and kart packages. The awareness this game will receive will hopefully draw more customers to new systems, like the Nintendo Switch. Give the game a try on your iOS or Android device, free to download and play.
